So you are in need of a local bail company to approve you for a bond so you can get your loved one out, right? Follow these steps and we'll show you exactly what we're looking for before we approve any of our clients today!
Where Are The Signers From? Is The Family Signing For The Bail Bond?
The biggest problem that our potential clients run into is the fact that they don't have any San Bernardino locals to vouch for them while signing. If someone has been booked into the West Valley Detention Center which is in the Fontana/Rancho Cucamonga area, but all of the signers are in another state, why would we take the risk? It's very likely that the inmate might up and leave to go be with their family! Makes sense right? If it doesn't, well just know that in our industry, defendants post bond and flee to another state ALL OF THE TIME.
One way to fix this issue is to get multiple signers that are in the local San Bernardino area to cosign on the inmates bail bond paperwork. They'll have to be employed, have proof of employment and if possible, property is always a plus. This will show your bondsman that they're willing to place their property on the line, this will ensure that the inmate will go to court.
What Was The Inmate Arrested For?
Qualifying for a bond has several factors within it. One would be the charges that the inmate is being detained for. How serious were they?
An example of a serious accident would be a DUI crash with bodily injury on another person. If the defendant was driving under the influence and seriously injured a person, they can end up doing jail time for 1-5 years to say the least! If the car accident victim were to hire a San Bernardino Personal Injury Lawyer then that attorney could very well fight to make sure your loved one isn't released from custody.
Serious charges make is that much harder for an inmate to bail out of jail. So to recap on this topic, make sure you are well aware of the charges that your loved one is facing before you start reaching out to local Bail Bonds in San Bernardino.
Get Your Finances In Order
Another factor that us bail bonds companies look at before approving a bond is the financial end that will be backing both the defendant and the cosigners. If you are trying to get approved for a $50,000 bond, which would result in being $5,000 and your total income for the month is only $500 a month, then you clearly can't afford it.
There has to be a clear and positive debt to savings ratio that we can see before approving anyone for a bond.
Secondly, what do your bills look like? How well is your credit score? If you have a horrible credit score with tons of late payments and broken contracts with other companies, our company might not want to approve you for those very exact reasons.
As a company, we want to know that the people we get out of custody are going to make it to their court date first and foremost, but also make their payments that they promised to pay us, for getting them out of jail. It's as simple as that.
